    I’ll miss the twinkle in your eyes every time you’d say something sassy. You were a funny guy that always kept us on our toes. You were a good friend to both Donnie and I. Donnie will forever refer to you as Fast Larry, for selling lawn mowers like a used car salesman. Lol Keep them laughing when you get where you’re going, you’ll be missed!

    I will miss the twinkle in your eyes every time you said something sassy. You were a funny guy that kept everyone, especially Janette, on their toes with your quick witt. You were a good friend to both Don and I. Donnie will forever refer to you as Fast Larry for selling lawnmowers with the skill of the finest used car salesman. Lol. Keep them laughing at your shenanigans when you get where you’re going. You’ll be missed!
